Got this report and photo from "Willie the fly guy" yesterday at the dam. Lots of walleye and whitebass, some crappie too, are being caught by the dam. Hair jigs and flies are working really well, along with plastics and xl tuffy fatheads. So get your winter clothes on and get out there. Walleyes are biting pretty good on the river from the mouth up to the Jefferson dam.

Water levels are still up slightly from what they were, tough bite managed 2 sheephead and 5 saugers with one legal at 15-1/2". Nice to see the river moving again finally getting a lot of that duck weed out of the area. Again seein lots of small crappies being caught with a few decent ones around 9" or so nothing real big. Lots of tiny whites and cats too. This Indian summer has really thrown things off along with low water hope with this cold spell coming kings should pick up. All fish caught on hair jig and streamers

I've been getting reports of guys catching crappie and whitebass in and around the dam area in Jefferson. Guys are mostly buying fatheads, but some are using jig and twister tails as well. Good luck!

Waters still low needs some rain, lots of very tiny white bass and crappie around the 3-4" range did see a coulple larger crappie caught but nothing to brag. I myself did mange 2 nice white bass about 14" and saw one walleye caught in a 6 hour outing. Need some colder weather and more rain this recent temp jump has warmed the water back up some and again is getting lower. Snagging sheephead where ever I go and can't keep them off the crawlers and plastics
Hello everyone, was wondering if you fellow lake linkers could help me out. I'm wondering if anyone has any good pointers for catching some sheep said on the rock. if you're willing to share specific locations that would be wonderful, and any other details would help. Thank you, p.m. Me if you'd prefer

Well the last rain storm brought he water up a little not much but some, fishing was really slow for anything worth while lots of tiny cats and sheeps no game fish caught. Saw a guys get a nice 30" channel cat above the dam, and we did manage 7 keeper bluegills and a few smaller ones something I don't usually see caught in numbers down there. Hoping this weeks rain will bring levels up more a few colder nights to get the fish moving more. Update later in week if things get better. Side note my buddy found some nice crappie when out in his kayak in the bark river around a bend up from bait shop in Fort near a fallen tree

Fished for awhile with my son waters really low haven't seen it this low at the dam in a few years. Lots of little sheeps, mini kitties, and very small white bass. Did have have one monster channel on for a bit but my son didn't get the net over to me in time and it broke off. Tons of ducks to making it hard to fish. Haven't hit the dam to much this year since we just moved into our new house back in April been working around the yard. So haven't had a lot of posts this year unlike recent years, time is opening up for me so once we start fishing more now I will post more of what's going on in the area
